This service-learning handbook is designed to help youth workers bring service-learning to elementary afterschool programs in approximately 15 one-hour sessions. This book begins with an overview of the practice, then takes facilitators through a series of experiential sessions that highlight youth voice and leadership. Each session begins with an energizer activity tied to the content of the session, and ends with a reflection -- often in the form of an "exit ticket". By the end of the experience, young people will have acted on issues of importance to them through a deliberative inquiry-based process.
